From Blossoms

From Blossoms is a collection of poems by Li-Young Lee. Because I am of the opinion that poetry should always be open for any interpretation, it's quite impossible to review. So here's a poem about his book.

The winged seed
lies weightless in my palm
yet snatched my mind
reminds me of another home,
of roses, peaches
of a father who taught me love
I know that in
the city in which I love you
the seed will find the soil
to grow
to stretch
to shape ink into vowels
and dress the
book of my nights.
